Thirsty skin? Need more hydration? How about using a serum with a surge of moisture-rich hyaluronic acid, a blend of organic vitamins and licorice root that also enhances the skin’s radiance?
Introducing the lightweight but performance heavy Estelle & Thild Biohydrate Thirst Relief Vitamin Serum.
This multifunction product promises to instantly hydrate and refresh your complexion. At the same time restore luster, increase skin collagen and soften skin texture.
Now the 63-dollar question is: does it deliver?
About Estelle & Thild
Before answering that question, let me say this unreservedly: I love Estelle & Thild. All the products I’d tried from the brand have either met or exceeded my expectations. That’s why I’ll always check out the brand whenever I head to Sephora. Seeing them just makes my hormones bubble with joy. ^0^
My only gripe is that the brand is quite pricey considering they are only Ecocert-certified. Majority of their ingredients are of natural origin but are not from organic farming.
But this Swedish skincare brand differentiates themselves with formulations containing natural ingredients of highest quality through the help of dermatologists and toxicologists.
Interestingly though, the company says it does not mix too many plant extracts to lower the risk of irritability for those with sensitive skin. This is definitely unlike other green brands that boast of using mostly botanical extracts.
All Estelle & Thild’s products are free from parabens, mineral oils, sodium lauryl/laureth sulfate, propylene glycol, silicone, urea, DEA, TEA, synthetic emulsiï¬ers, PEG and dyes.
Their products are also not tested on animals and are environmentally certiï¬ed Nordic productions that use recyclable packaging.
Performance and results
So how did I find Estelle & Thild Biohydrate Thirst Relief Vitamin Serum? Did it perform and deliver for my skin given all its glowing promises?
Estelle & Thild Biohydrate Thirst Relief Vitamin Serum cost me S$63 but it didn’t disappoint. I can feel my skin instantly hydrated, plump and soft. The best part is that this serum is so lightweight, non-sticky and plays nice with my other skin care products.
I use this serum mostly in the day. It spreads well and sinks into my skin quickly. I also like that it has a light fruity scent–reminds me of Estelle & Thild Repairing Oil Complex which I’d tried last year.
Although I haven’t noticed any visible radiance after using this serum but my skin definitely feels very comfortable throughout the day without any dry spots.
